This show really has everything that many of us have come to love in Kdrama. It’s an amazing show with a great cast, fantastic story and amazing acting. The 16 episode show goes around the two Hyun Bin as Ri Jeong-hyeok, who is a Captain of Company Five in the Korean People’s Army who is stationed along the North Korean portion and Son Ye-jin as Yoon Se-ri a South Korean heiress to Queen’s Group , who accidentally while paragliding in Seoul, South Korea, is swept up in a sudden storm and crash-lands in the North Korean portion and meets a Captain in the Korean People’s Army ( Hyun Bin as Ri Jeong-hyeok) . Over time, they fall in love, despite the divide and dispute between their respective countries and other family problems.
The show actually proved some theories – love has no boundaries , opposites attract and in this case north and south poles attract here. It also leaves us with the essence of love , care , the solid and sparky chemistry the lead actors share. We also get to see the glimpse of how North korean life feels afresh and away from city life, which is the major highlight of the show. The show is worth binge watching for it has the perfect amount of entertainment ,romance ,drama , and also has a sassy sense of humour .
On the other side, there is a stretch in mid episodes , which has a heavy narration and long drawn episodes. That can feel a lot difficult to understand and enjoy, but it ultimately depends on what kind of a watcher you are.
The portrayal of male protagonist with broad shoulders, cute handsome face, strong enough to protect his women and a female , young, beautiful, wealthy business heiress makes the show an irresistible combination. The story of Captain Ri and Yoon Se-ri’s relationship gives a taste of realism as well which will keep the audience engaged , satisfied and still wanting more.
The show is available on Netflix
